Man Accused of Stealing Homes Sent Back to Jail

CBS Denver, January 7, 2012

A man charged with stealing homes has been sent back to jail.

A judge revoked Alfonso Carrillo’s bond when he went to court on charges of theft and filing phony deeds.

The bond revocation comes after additional charges were filed in Denver, but it includes numerous cities.

Larry Asbery contacted CBS4 in November. He said after he got out of the hospital he found people living in his Aurora home. They wouldn’t leave, so he went to court. A settlement was reached with the person who claimed someone had sold her the house. Those inside were supposed to be out by Thursday, but the people were still in the home. Asbery, meantime, has been staying with family


Asbery is not alone. CBS4 discovered around a dozen other homes undergoing foreclosure that have been similarly taken over in Colorado towns. The common denominator appears to be Carrillo, who is accused in Denver of changing locks on empty homes then selling or leasing them to others.


Carrillo wouldn’t speak to CBS4, but he has filed a federal lawsuit against several law enforcement agencies. In it he charges discrimination against Hispanics who have moved into the homes.

  • This is crazy! He really thinks that Hispanics cannot get homes other than buying them through him? 

  • Don’t laugh, but they get away with this stuff in some states.   Your Legal Aid dollars at work.

    Just another example of 3rd worlders coming to this country and bringing the corruption of the  3rd  world with them.

    I remember ACORN advising their followers to move into houses being foreclosed on and then squatting there for as long as possible. They called it “social justice”.

    If you stole a horse in this country, they would hang you. Whatever did happen to those traditional values anyways?

  • How do you know when discrimination/racism has occurred?  When a non-white is told No.

    How do you prove it?  With a Non-White Plaintiff and a White Defendant.
